So there's a topic on Grosjean's crash but I didn't see a main F1 thread.
I've been watching Drive to Survive a lot lately and I'm honestly shocked at how much I'm enjoying it. To a point where I'm going to get up early tomorrow to watch the Belgian Grand Prix. Any other F1 fans here? Anything you can tell to a noob?
Basically it's a hockey simulation league. You manage your team against other managers in different tiered leagues. There's no trades but there's a big market system, lots of stats etc. You have something like 30 games in a season, then go into a playoff format. If you're one of the top 2 or 4 teams in your league, you advance to the next tiered league up.
There's only a month or so left until the pre-season and I'm pumped to watch the Leafs again. I've been doing some digging on youtube and there's a bunch of excellent videos that highlight the goals of some of our players in 2011.
One thing I noticed is how clockwork this guy is. Every goal is either a perfect wrist shot from inside the hash marks or a dirty goal from standing in front of the net, pouncing on rebounds and grinding it out. I think the sheer ugliness of his goals make him one of the more underrated goal scorers in the league.
Well, it's summer and I'm antsy for a dip somewhere, but I don't want to travel very far. I checked up on some of the water conditions and the beaches and turns out I live a 10 minute drive from Sunnyside Beach. It's not a blue flag beach but it's got some consistently low e-coli levels this year. I'm a bit apprehensive though since it's so close to the Humber, but I've read that the City's done a pretty good job making it swimmable again.
Any thoughts on the Toronto Beaches? Would you swim in them?
